NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony’s shoulder is barking.
He is shooting horribly.
His team is facing a younger, bigger and more physical team.
And the Knicks are now down 1-0 in their Eastern Conference playoff series after the Indiana Pacers stole Game 1, 102-95 at Madison Square Garden.
But Melo says there’s no cause for alarm.
“This was the first game,” Anthony said after shooting 10-of-28 for 27 points.
“They outworked us, they outplayed us today and they stole one on our home court. We’ll go back tomorrow and make our adjustments for Tuesday’s game. I’ll leave those calls up to Coach [Mike] Woodson and his staff to figure that out. And we’ll come back with our adjustments being made here on Tuesday.”
